Nanovation New York: Discovering the Invisible Frontier
Nanotech,the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, is an innovative technology—but how does it affect our daily lives? Nanotech has been utilized to alleviate global problems we currently face, such as cutting-edge cancer treatments, water purification, and increased efficiency in energy technology. What future developments can we expect from this high-tech research? Join nanotechnology experts from Germany and North America asthey discuss its current impact inthe fields of energy, electronics, medicine, and science. Our panel will also address nanotechnology’s application inthe business sphere, bridgingthe gap between research and development.Followingthe discussion, join us forthe opening reception ofthe “NanoArt” exhibition, a series that features nano images from laboratories atthe Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE),the Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM),the Center for NanoScience (CeNS),the University Alliance Metropolis Ruhr,the Leibniz Institute for Analytical Sciences (ISAS e.V.), andthe Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.Welcome remarks by:Dr. Oliver Schnakenberg, Deputy Consul General, Consulate General ofthe Federal Republic of Germany inNew YorkDr. Joann Halpern, Director, German Center for Research and InnovationTo register, please click here.Co-Sponsors:Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE)Consortium ofthe Ruhr Universities (ConRuhr USA)
